Towards socially aware content centric networking

Project: Funded ProjectResearch

1/10/11 → …

This project, funded by Cisco, is investigating how social networks may ultimately influence user behaviour when video content is consumed across the Internet. More specifically, the project is looking at how activity and trending data can be used to benefit networks, by using intelligent caching mechanisms to reduce traffic load and improve service delivery. Most recently, the project is exploring how a technology known as “OpenFlow” can optimise the repeated delivery of identical content, while allowing the applications deployed across the network to continue using apparently simple unicast flows.
